Teens and adults are invited to spend an afternoon with award-winning and New York Times best-selling author Laurie Halse Anderson, who will share about her popular young adult fiction, including her groundbreaking debut novel Speak, on Saturday, September 29, at 2 pm at Smoky Hill Library (5430 S. Biscay Circle, Centennial).
Recently re-released as a graphic novel, Speak authentically captures the emotional journey of an isolated teen as she navigates high school life. Anderson will share about her writing process and what drives her, as she often tackles tough topics with humor and sensitivity.
The author’s readership spans young people to adults and combined, and her books have sold more than eight million copies. Anderson has won several international, national and state awards and has been recognized for her efforts in championing intellectual freedom and diversity in publishing.
Anderson’s books will be available for purchase from Tattered Cover and she will sign her books after the presentation.
